No Prompt for Parameters?[SOLVED]

I have the following WF request:
TABLE FILE FS004
PRINT *
HEADING
""
FOOTING
""
WHERE FS004.FS004.AC_PROC_STATUS EQ &ProcStat.(AND(<Bypass,B>,<Cancel,C>,<Hold,H>,<Montly,M>,<Process,P>)).Process Status.;
ON TABLE SET PAGE-NUM OFF 
ON TABLE NOTOTAL
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT HTML  


When I run it , the HTML window tells me that "(FOC295) A VALUE IS MISSING FOR: &ProcStat". What am I missing here? Usually when I set up a parameter in this way, the window will prompt me beforehand, but it appears it is bypassing this step and just running the request immediately.

I dont believe I have access to the admin console, but I'll try

EDIT.....
No, I dont have access to that, but I am able to view the config files on my IFS. What should I be looking for?

HI,Peters
you can ask your admin to logon to console
ort/ibi_apps" target="_blank">http://serverRazzerort/ibi_apps
in general and change the IBIF_wfdescribe to XMLRUN
or you can use Prompt commant to do it.

If this is a procedure you are running from Managed Reporting, make sure the "Prompt for Parameters" box is checked in the Properties dialog for the procedure.

Dan, no, I was trying to do it in the EDASERVE. I knew about that check box but since I was developing in the EDASERVE, that option never came up. I'll try Landerman's suggestion and see if that works.

Do not forget that changing the server profile to set IBIF_wfdescribe to XMLRUN will affect ALL end users and may impact their developments. If your Production environment is set to OFF then I would urge you to keep that setting in Devlopment also.

But then you knew that anyway Wink

You mean outside of the WebFocus client? If so, then yeah, there is no autoprompt.
As a rule of thumb, I would not advise to do your development directly on the server, I'd always try to do it towards the way the endusers will be using the product. That way there'll be no awkward surprises after development has been concluded....

Take out the AND:
 
WHERE FS004.FS004.AC_PROC_STATUS EQ &ProcStat.(<Bypass,B>,<Cancel,C>,<Hold,H>,<Montly,M>,<Process,P>).Process Status.;

Are you sure this is the case? After asking my systems guys to check that setting, I am getting what I needed to prompt for the parameter.

Tom, the AND was put in by the product. I was trying to get a combo box where I could filter for multiple values.
